Maybe people know about this already since it seems like this has been in the news for a couple of months after googling around about the beta that guy mentioned in the second link above. Maybe it'll include 5.1 audio finally since it'd be nice if they got that before the century is up

I have a feeling that Hulu may be using VP9 which I can't verify because on the Shield TV they still use h264. The issue would be the license for EAC3 (DD+) whereas if they wait until fall AV1 should have a workable 5.1 in place and no license required for that.

Also given that Hulu is the child of ABC, FOX and NBC that you may see things you may not have expected on some of the streams as far as quality goes. They can pretty much do what they want and use Hulu to do some testing.

Won't that open audio encoding have to be converted into something that contemporary AVRs can deal with at some point? How will that happen?

Ask an AV1 member. It has probably been worked out.

Here this might help but put on your geek cap and there are a couple samples of opus surround files you can download and see what your AV receiver does with them.

The only thing on my PC which can play one of those files is VLC and it outputs it over HDMI as stereo PCM (fully recognizing that it's 6 channel audio), but then it does the same thing with DTS (it outputs DD and DD+ intact).

And I had to buy a new receiver to replace my Pioneer which wouldn't decode DD+ (nor switch HDMI). They'll love to sell you a new receiver. Isn't that the way technology always works.
